the state lines, about increasing general practitioners and family practice in the health-care bill. there is a lot of stuff in the health-care bill. i always get accused of not reading it. the health-ine isn' care bill extends health care for eight years. the mistake that was made was that we did not implement it quick enough to be able to get the competition of the kinds of things in the health-care bill, and if you take a look at what congress has done when inside the affordable care at, i do fine women's health, trying to make a voucher system who out of the medicare system, these things are not good for seniors. they are not good for women, and they are not good for the population. we will talk about health care for some time to go. i think it is a step in the right direction. >> the problem is obamacare cost jobs. it does not solve the problem and steal $716 billion from medicare. it is not a good plan. people did not read it. it was passed with lack of information, and senator tester did not have one single town hall meeting on obamacare. >> first, that is incorrect. second,

away. our seniors ought to be confident their retirement is secure and healthcare is secure. these things will happen again. and i'm convinced of that because i've seen the heart of the american people over my lifetime. we're innovative and optimistic and hardworking. i also see a willingness to live for something bigger than ourself. i was a leader in the boy scouts of america some years ago. and i was at a court of honor, that's where the boy scouts get their eagle scout awards or other awards and there was a table at the front of the room and i was seated at the end of the table next to the american flag. and the person that was speaking was the scout master from colorado. and he said the boys wanted to have a special flag. so they bought one. they sent it to be flown above the capital. then when it came home the boys said let's have it go on the space shuttle. that will make it more special. they contacted nasa and nasa agreed. they said the boys were so proud as they watched the challenger go up in the sky and they saw it explode before their eyes. the scout master call
